Help us do more

National POLST’s main source of income, by far, is grants (about 94%), an indication of the worthiness of our mission and projects in the eyes of many foundations. However, grant awards are all short-term “soft money”: when the project is completed, so is the funding. (View our supporters.) We have no endowment or sustained source of funds.

Our next largest source of income (~5%) is modest donations from about half of the state POLST programs. Individual donations make up about 1%.

Every bit matters, makes a difference, and is much appreciated. Thank you for considering a donation.
